DCWV/Tombow Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY



 
Hi and Welcome to the Gold and Cork Blog Hop with Tombow USA and DCWV! We have 2 days full with gorgeous projects using GOLD and CORK! You probably came here from Jennifer Priest's blog but if you happened to stumble across my blog initially, go to the DCWV Blog to start at the beginning of the hop! 
 
'Here is the button for the blog hop :)'
 
I've put together a trio of cards using the DCWV's gorgeous Gilded Stack and a whole lot of awesome Tombow adhesives to keep everything stuck down and in tact.
 
 
Supplies used: DCWV Gilded Stack, DCWV Gem Stickers, DCWV Star Mirrors; Tombow Mono Multi Glue; Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, Tombow Foam Tape.
All three of the cards I've put together for this post have a cream colored card base, with a front panel cut from various papers from the Gilded Stack, to 4.25" x 5.5" to completely cover the card front.  To be sure these gorgeous gold papers don't separate from the underlying card base, I made sure to adhere them with the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive for extra stick and security.
 

I wanted my buttons on this card, to peek out from under the sentiment square.  Since buttons are dimensional, I needed to add some layer and dimension to the 'Hello' piece.  The Tombow Foam Tape was the perfect width to lift that sentiment piece up off the card base and leave room to tuck my button accents partially underneath.


The next card uses more of the Tombow Foam Tape, to lift the wood patterned paper panel off of the background paper. 


I wanted to add some additional sparkle around the card's sentiment, and DCWV gems and mirrors seemed to be the obvious choice.  To ensure that the bling doesn't move as it goes through the mail, I used the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to secure the mirrors and gemstones in place.

 
For the final card, again the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue was a necessity!  All of the gem stickers I adhered to this card front were placed over top of the slick foil dot surface.  The liquid glue provided for a secure hold that the normal adhesive might night guarantee, especially as it travelled through the mail.

 
More Tombow Foam Adhesive Tape was used to attach this card's sentiment strip and the fussy cut ampersand, creating an overall look of lots of interest and dimension.

 
So, now on to the really fun part of this post  - the GIVEAWAYS! There are plenty of prizes to be won!  To win, visit and comment on the participating blog posts. You have until March 31st at 11:59 EST to comment. A winner will be picked randomly and announced on April 1st 2015.
